  • some good mics?

    just bought a new headset (Sennheiser RS195) and need a mic, as it doesn't have one, grown out of the "gaming headset look" I think..

    can anyone recommend a good quality mic? I've been looking at getting the Blue Yeti, although there doesn't seem to be many "reasonable" mounting options.

    what do you guys recommend?

    USB input or are you using an audio interface? What's your budget?

      I'd personally just go cheap. 10-15.

        my yeti has fit all but the thinnest of shock mounts. currently hanging off the end of a cheap ish boom arm.

        that being said, a good set of cans and a desk mic will server you better than any "gaming" headset

          Don't mind if its USB or XLR, as for price obviously cheaper the better... but I'd say no more then 150 really I could go 200 odd if it made massive improvements...

          I was going to get the Blue Yeti Vintage White with boom for around 120, or a LyxPro SMU-1 (it's USB) with a boom for around 50, or there is a set I've found Focusrite Scarlett Bundle, which comes with a headset which I don't need, 170 w/boom...

            That's what I'm aiming to do what boom did you use for your yeti? as the yeti is a fairly chunky mic

              I currently got the SteelSeries H Wireless and its quality is too nice to downgrade

                  A nice condenser mic I use for recording is the rode m3. Can be had for about 50 and is amazing quality for the money. Not sure if that's the sort of thing you're looking for though?

                    A popular one is the Audio-Technica AT2020, comes in both usb and XLR I believe.

                      its defiantly something I'll consider, but what preamp?

                        Do you have an audio interface already?

                            the at2020 is another great usb mic. maybe better than the yeti if you want to record more than just voice.

                              In that case, you'll get a better mic if you go for USB, imo. You can spend your whole budget on the mic, rather than splitting it between the two. Unless you want to buy and audio interface, anyway?
